Sloppy Joe Nachos

My one regret in this recipe is that it took me so long to create it.

As a kid, Sloppy Joes were my go-to birthday meal request. There's something undeniably comfort foody about the squishy warm sandwiches. But what if you poured that Sloppy Joe meat mixture all over nachos? Super Bowl food at its best.

While there's a pop of cayenne powder in this spiced-up version of Sloppy Joes, I pair it with Trader Joe's queso dip, which also has a kick of heat. You can also use melted cheese in lieu of queso.
